The forces determined to undermine marriage and family in the state of Indiana are aligning and coordinating their attack. A recent silly editorial in the Kokomo Tribune demonstrated this sad reality. The editors of the Kokomo Tribune wrote that allowing the voters of Indiana to amend their constitution to respect Godâs definition of marriage was not necessary. Indiana law, they said, already forbid it (ignoring the obvious reality that such law can be overturned by a court decision as has...

One of the biggest challenges that Indiana Republicans are going to have in the upcoming election cycle is explaining to conservative voters why they should ever cast a vote for them again. In a monumental collapse of epic proportions, Republican leadership failed to pass the Indiana Marriage Amendment on to voters despite being given supermajorities in both houses to do so. Then, as if that wasnât bad enough, when one of their number â Senator Mike Delph â spoke out against the failure of...

Another Republican lawmaker in Indiana has defected to the side that would allow the destruction of marriage and family in the state. Representative Sean Eberhart has boldly announced his transition into the land of moral oblivion, expressing concern that debate over the stateâs marriage amendment will âdominate talksâ when the legislature reconvenes in January. Of course, the only reason it will dominate talks and not just pass without incident is because of people like Eberhart. Add to...

One of the founders of the conservative movement in America, Russell Kirk, wrote an epic list of ten key principles that define a conservative shortly before his death. Principle number one â the first and most primary principle â was this: a conservative respects the moral order of society. http://www.kirkcenter.org/index.php/detail/ten-conservative-principles/ Not surprisingly, but unquestionably disgustingly, 23 Republicans in the Indiana House of Representatives betrayed that principle,...

As the battle over Indianaâs Marriage Protection Amendment begins to heat up, the anti-Christian gay lobby is ramping up their fundraising, and employing their usual deceptive tricks. Namely, they parade around easily manipulated and weak minded business leaders who, fearing reprisal from a movement that has the media in its hip pocket, claim that opposing the un-defining of marriage and family makes a state less attractive to business investment. Eli Lilly Corporation and Cummins Engine are... Topics: 414 Project, Peter Heck, Indiana Marriage Amendment, gay marriage, AFAIN, Micah Clark
So itâs now become public who the individual was who offered a bribe of lifetime campaign funding to House Republican Speaker Brian Bosma in return for Bosma disenfranchising Hoosier voters on the issue of marriage. It was former Indiana Republican Party chairman and Finance Chairman for Governor Mike Penceâs campaign, Jim Kittle. Obviously this isnât overly surprising to anyone who has been paying attention to the increasing cluelessness within the Republican Party. A deadly combination of...

Today's guest: Senator John Harrington (DFL) district 67, who gave an impassioned speech on the senate floor in response to the marriage amendment that is on the Minnesota ballot in November 2012. He grew up in an era where there were rules on who he could date and who he could marry because he is black. The struggle to change those rules and have the right to date whomever live strongly in his memories as it does for anyone who lived through that time period. The current marriage amendment...
